Module 1 - Basic Shapes

This module is needed to sculpt the head, body for our kit doll, and to learn the basic techniques we will use throughout our doll sculpting adventure. Just a few techniques can create so much!

 

Module 2 - Creating the Body on Wire Armature Many teachers offer doll class with armature, and this is just a basic introduction to my method which I developed while creating polymer dolls. It makes a strong body, and strong, elegant necks.
Module 3 - Sculpting the Face: Nose

Creating the face – Sculpting the nose…your doll’s “centerpiece”!

 

Module 4 - Sculpting the Face: Eyes
Creating the face – Sculpting the eyes…the window’s to the soul of your doll.
Module 5 - Sculpting the Face: Cheeks & Mouth Creating laughing, happy cheeks and expressive eyes.
Module 6 - Sculpting the Ears

Sculpting realistic ears with just a few rolls and tucks!

 

Module 7 - Dressing: Sculpting the Boots and Pants Dressing our doll for his holiday adventures!
Module 8 - Dressing: Sculpting the Torso and Shirt Dressing our doll and adding character to his mid-section.
Module 9 - Sculpting the Hands Sculpting the hands in 100% wool or using a wire armature for posable hands. Hands should be attached before head is attached.
Module 10 - Attaching the Head and Sculpting the Neck Posing the head, sewing in place and sculpting the neck
Module 11 - Creating Santa's Hooded Cloak Outfitting our doll, simple methods for clothes that look removable.
Module 12 - Adding Hair and Beard + Final Touches Give Santa those white curly locks and rosy cheeks that we have all come to love!

Marie Spaulding began teaching needle felting techniques online in 2004. Her company LIVING FELT was the first to publish full-color kits and booklets with step-by-step instructions for needle felting in 3-D.

Marie Spaulding has been featured on the DIY network -Uncommon Threads, published in Designer Needlefelting by Lark Books and is the founder of Living Felt, The Felting Forum and How To Felt.

Never before this has Marie taught her doll making techniques online or in person, but in 2009, she wanted to do something special for her birthday, so she began sharing her needle felted art doll techniques to raise funds for her favorite non-profit organization. Since the launch of her art doll kit in March of 2009, more and more people have been requesting doll kits.
WHAT OTHERS THINK:

"Your instructional CD was a wonderful inspiration! There were so many great tips and helpful suggestions in addition to the easy-to-follow directions. I’m so happy that I tried this! Santa is my second doll and is surely a marked improvement over my first. Thanks, Marie!! "

"Your videos are great. They are very clear and well done. Thanks so much for adding these to your class."

"I made this Santa Doll from your Living Felt Kit. I created the teddy for him to hold as a gift. ...

Your kit was very thorough in the instructions and allowed me to focus on creativity as you can see from the nose-structure.
I felted his hands vs using wire. Had a great time! Thank you for your fantastic products!"

Judy Chapman

We take a basic approach to needle felting, you will learn what we consider the basic building blocks which will empower you to create your own masterpieces by learning a few basic sculpting skills. Then we will build on the basics for the detail that will make your doll come to life!

Rather than teach you how to make only one specific doll, this workshop will empower your innovative side with introductions to different approaches yielding different results. One of my favorite things about sculptural felting is that you never have to repeat yourself. We'll show you unique techniques for creating truly one of a kind dolls.
